I've been winding warps for future projects as well. The darker one is partially finished. It will be yardage for a cloak or a sacque coat.
The lighter one is for a set of huck lace tea towels. The tea towels will go on the loom in the next day or two. Right now there is a large work table set up against the loom, to accommodate painting cupboards and attaching hardware.
Some utility sewing has been done. I played with a pattern design and used an old sheet to work up a sample. I'd hoped it would be wearable, but no such luck. It was a good learning experience though, as I played around with a few new techniques but the sample is definitely not wearable.
The little Christmas stocking I made for my daughter's cat is pretty cute though. Lucky kitty!
It is Christmas at Westfield. The evening programs are pretty spectacular, with the whole village being lit with oil lamps and candles. It is so pretty.
